crucible restapi xml parsing fail

Hi I am trying to send a file through restapi which it has special characters (I am using git , I commiited the file and tried to send through restapi), I am using below rest call, but its not anchoring or not generating the review link if the file contains any special characters,

Please let me know hpw to fix this issue

$headers = {"Accept" =>'application/xml', "Content-Type" => 'application/xml', "Authorization" =>'Basic '};
my $responseContent = $client->POST('/rest-service/reviews-v1/?FEAUTH='.$token, $file, $headers);

Thanks

I am doing diff of my file which it contains special characters, If I am parsing this text into restapi format , it is not working, it doesn't accept the special characters.

patchcontent

DIFF IS diff --git x.txt x.txt

I used this restapi call

As you send the patch in XML format, some special characters must be encoded.
One page where these are described is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_XML_and_HTML_character_entity_references#Predefined_entities_in_XML

If you are using an "&" (ampersand) in your patch, then you need to replace it with "&amp;" if you want to send it as XML.
